Protecting Property Rights

protecting property rights banner

The NVAR Government Affairs program develops policy to guide the association in the legislative and regulatory arenas. We then advocate for those policy positions to protect the industry from harmful legislation that would erode private property rights, increase the costs of real estate transactions or place excessive regulations on home owners and buyers, among others.

Informed, Engaged and Ready

The success of these efforts relies on individual Realtor® participation. Our Government Affairs efforts are at their strongest when Realtors® are informed, engaged and ready to act. We offer many ways for you to learn about the issues, meet with your elected officials, and participate in setting NVAR’s lobbying priorities.

Advocacy at NVAR: Together We Are Strong

Together we are strong. Stand together with your Realtor® colleagues to safeguard the real estate industry and support an environment that is friendly to buying and selling real estate.  NVAR is at the forefront of educating the members, public, and elected officials to help them understand the impact of public policy and legislation on the Northern Virginia real estate industry.

NVAR provides community outreach and education, builds relationships with elected officials, and raises funds through the Realtors® Political Action Committee (RPAC) to help elect candidates who will listen to our point of view and to support or oppose key issue campaigns.
